“I feel the key ingredient to attaining a successful outcome is letting the client know they are in control and we are only here to help. Our goal is to set them up with the support services they need to remain home, happy, and as independent as possible.”

- Bridget Free, Bennington Data & Administrative Assistant

"When I returned home from the hospital, I wasn’t able to prepare meals. My Case Manager arranged for meals to be delivered to my home until I could manage for myself."
